Choosing a fireplace that doubles as a geometric work of modern art is a surefire way to make a statement. With a bold aesthetic that looks more like it belongs in a museum, this modern fireplace absolutely does not fade into the background. The corner placement is a unique design element, making use of a space that generally isn`t the focal point of a room. With a large, comfortable chair and sleekly modern home decor, you can create a gorgeous reading nook or workspace anyone would be proud to have in their home.
Few can deny the nostalgic joy of a good old fashioned fireplace, to say nothing of the warmth and heavenly glow provided on a long cold night or at an intimate gathering.
And while many homes built during certain periods feature built-in fireplaces, they may require an update to keep with the times and one`s personal needs.
Fireplaces can fit into any space. Wood can create a classic library fireplace, a modern hearth or a transitional focal point. Stone can be smooth, rough, stacked or fitted. It can retain its natural finish or get a coat of paint. Color contrast creates drama.
